ASSIGNMENT 1 Exercise 1: Falling rolling disk In this exercise we consider a falling rolling disk, which corresponds, of course, to a more realistic case than the example studied in class. Figure 1: Falling Rolling Disk 1. Define the vector q of generalized coordinates 2. Compute the angular velocity of the falling rolling disk 3. Compute the velocity of the centre of the disk under the pure-rolling assumption 4. Derive the kinematic constraints 5. Write the kinematic constraints in the Pfaffian form 6. Apply the Frobenius theorem to show the nonholonomy of the falling rolling disk
